Sikh Cast Ep76 - 12 Gurus Series: Guru Harkrishan

August 27, 2018

In a new podcast series The 12 Gurus: From 1469 to Infinity, SikhRI sheds light on the lives and meaning of Gurus in Sikhi. Were they spiritualists and reformers or Divine and Revolutionaries? What lessons can we draw from them? How do they teach us to think?

The series introduces Gurus as masters of fine arts, builders of cities, deliverers of justice, coordinators of Seva and an overarching gateway to freedom and equality. It touches on the singular and harmonized Jot and Jugat as well as varied and diverse physical and temporal forms to provide a holistic understanding of the Gurus’ fundamental nature.

In this eposide we dive into the world of Guru Harkrishan who continues Guru Nanak's mission:

  • Family tree and important personalities
  • Father's last wishes - never submit to Aurangzeb
  • Breaking the Brahmin's pride (recitation of Gita by a shudra)
  • Clinics for smallpox
  • His illness was a protest
